Nose to the Grindstone

***Yep, back to it today. We had a great weekend! I did get some work done, but still managed to have a great afternoon with Emily, Johnny, and Mark Saturday, then another great visit with family yesterday for Mothers Day.  Back to reality today!

***This says so much...I think the Republicans should make a T-Shirt out of this picture:

***Obama-rooting in the media. Read this piece by Jennifer Rubin, it really lays bare the "in-the-tank-for-Obama" mentality prevalent in our media today. Some examples:

3. Interest in the recall campaign against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) declines in inverse proportion to his chances of winning. The race is now considered simply “local” politics.

5. Whatever Romney says on gay marriage is “knuckling under to his base.” Obama decision to announce his shift on gay marriage before a string of fundraisers with Hollywood stars and gay donors is “brave” and “historic.”

7. Story after story on Mormonism are, we read, essential to understanding what makes Romney tick. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is old news (and verging on racism to bring it up), and it’s none of our business how frequently Obama goes to church.

Read 'em all.

***First there was Time magazine's cover, now Newsweek calls Obama "The First Gay President." Do they really think that will help him??

***Outgoing North Carolina Dem. governor rips her own constituents over gay marriage vote. No wonder she's "outgoing."


***This is huge...but have you seen anything in the mainstream media about it? Jeremiah Wright says Obama team attempted to bribe him to keep quiet during the last presidential campaign. Silly man. Guess Team Obama didn't realize the depths to which the media would go to protect him. Bribes were unnecessary. Look I have little use for Jeremiah Wright, and the veracity of his claim needs to be investigated. But it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it's true.


There once was an old man from Esser
Who's knowledge grew lesser and lesser,
        It at last grew so small
        He knew nothing at all,
And now he's a college professor.
***Have you seen "The Avengers?" It's setting records at the box office. I'm not 
interested, but apparently lots of other people are! Here's a fun post about what 
their political leanings would be.  

***California deficit balloons to $16 billion - Governor Brown  
 proposes tax hike.
WHEN will liberals learn that's not the answer?

***Oh yeah, I'm gonna call this guy...
***"Free government is founded in jealousy,
not confidence.  It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes
limited constitutions, to bind those we are obliged to trust with power....
In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in men,
but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
-- Thomas Jeffferson, 1799 
***Have a great day!
